PostSubject: Granger's double-double leads Pacers past 76ers   Wed Feb 18, 2009 10:20 pm

INDIANAPOLIS(AP) Danny Granger has no problem sharing the scoring load with his teammates.Granger
had 20 points - five under his season average - but five other Pacers
finished in double figures to pick up the slack in Indiana's 100-91
victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night."That's
very important,'' said Granger, who grabbed 10 rebounds. "When we can
score level across the board and I don't have to score 30 points,
that's the characteristic of a good team.''Troy Murphy scored 17
points, eight in the fourth quarter, Roy Hibbert and T.J. Ford each had
14, Jarrett Jack chipped in with 12 and Marquis Daniels had 11 for the
Pacers, who led by as many as 20 points in the first half."They
have a quick moving offense and everyone gets good opportunities,''
76ers coach Tony DiLeo said. "That doesn't surprise me they had so many
in double figures.''Andre Iguodala had 20 points and nine
assists, Louis Williams scored 17 and Thaddeus Young added 16 points
and nine rebounds for Philadelphia, which had its four-game winning
streak snapped.The 76ers fell behind 17-4 early in the first
quarter and trailed 28-18 heading into the second. The Pacers shot 57
percent in the first quarter, compared to Philadelphia's 35 percent."We really lost it in the first quarter,'' DiLeo said. "I didn't think we came out with the defensive energy we needed.''With
the Pacers holding a 17-point lead early in the fourth quarter,
Philadelphia got within 89-83 on Iguodala's three-point play with 4
minutes left. Indiana answered with baskets by Murphy and Granger to
push the lead back to 10.Young converted a three-point play on
Philadelphia's next possession, but Ford made a layup and Murphy
drained a 3-pointer to seal the victory."This would have been a
devastating loss for us with the large lead we had,'' Murphy said. "It
would have been very tough for us to come back.''After trailing
by 11 at halftime, Philadelphia closed the gap to 66-60 on Young's
layup midway through the third quarter. Indiana responded by outscoring
the 76ers 14-3 the rest of the period for an 80-63 lead."We
didn't have our intensity early, we didn't have our offensive rhythm
early,'' DiLeo said. "We got back into the game, but we just didn't
have enough.''Notes: Granger and 76ers G Andre Miller had some
heated words in the third quarter and had to be separated by teammates
after Miller committed a hard foul on Granger as he tried to get to the
basket. Granger was given a technical foul for charging at Miller after
the play. "I just lost it for a second,'' Granger said. "I don't think
he meant to do it, I just thought it was a dirty play. It's cool, we're
friends.'' ... Iguodala got a technical later in the third quarter for
arguing the lack of a call. ... Pacers G Mike Dunleavy (sore right
knee) missed his third straight game. It's the same injury that
sidelined him for the first 34 games of the season. ... The 76ers were
playing their first road game since Jan. 28. They had seven straight
home games and went 5-2 during that stretch, including a 99-94 win over
the Pacers on Feb. 5.
